Pompey and Southend meet for the third time in a little over two months on Saturday (12.30pm kick-off).
And visiting fans will be hoping for more of the same following a couple of 2-0 victories in those previous meetings.
The first was in the league at Fratton Park before Christmas, while last month’s Roots Hall clash saw the Blues progress in the Checkatrade Trophy.
There will be a few more eyes on the latest contest, however, which is being broadcast live on Sky Sports.
Pompey are looking to claim all three points for the first time since AFC Wimbledon were beaten on New Year’s Day.
Their opponents are currently sitting 14th in the table and only six points clear of the drop zone after 32 games.
Chris Powell’s men have lost their past four games on home soil and suffered a 3-0 defeat at Doncaster in their most recent outing.
Pompey will be hoping for a faster start than their last trip to Roots Hall in the league almost exactly 12 months earlier.
They found themselves two goals behind with just 12 minutes on the clock and were eventually beaten 3-1.
Andy Cannon (quad), Luke McGee (wrist) and Jack Whatmough (knee) are all missing for Pompey, while there is a doubt over Dion Donohue (ankle).
Southend will be without Sam Barratt (knee), Ben Coker (knee), Tom Hopper (knee), Rob Kiernan (knee), Harry Kyprianou (Achilles), Mark Oxley (back) and John White (groin), with Dru Yearwood suspended.
